Wood in the forest

The amount of wood in the forest was estimated at 6000 m3. How much wood will be in forest after 2 years if the annual growth of wood is 2.5% each year and logging 30 m3 each year?

Correct result:

a =  6243 m3


q=1+2.5/100=4140=1.025 a0=6000 m3  a1=a0 q30=6000 1.02530=6120 m3 a2=a1 q30=6120 1.02530=6243 m3 a=a2=6243=6243 m3
